Identification Equals Suffering …OK , what does that mean. It means the more identified you are with physicality, your life story, material things, relationships,sensations , feelings , thoughts , the more suffering you will encounter during your stay on “Hotel Earth” !
Yes its a hotel, your a guest , you check in and you check out ! But while your here , it seems the more you derive your self worth in “things” , the more difficult it will be to find what you are looking for , which is ultimately , to be complete , whole , satiated , with out “need” of any “Thing” .. our true nature outside the world of form!
True unconditional love does not “need” anything ! Suffering is always a resistance to what is !
If in fact ” life is but a dream” it seems obvious that trying to fulfill yourself from something that is so fleeting will only lead to disappointment , suffering, fear … so why do most of keep doing it ?
Programming , conditioning , we are all born into a highly programmed and conditioned construct called the human race, a grand experiment , a wonderful experience , perhaps unprecedented in the cosmos , fractals of “all that is ” lost in the mind created world .

Present Moment Awareness is where it’s at baby ! Don’t let any one tell you differently , they are just trying to suck you into the past or future , which is where the scared little ego is running around trying to make a life for itself .
Present Moment Awareness is about living in the moment , in a state of no mind , Zen like , yet still managing to keep the mind in a holding pattern so to speak .
Your mind is a useful tool no doubt about it , and you can learn to use it “just” when you need it , no sooner , no later, you keep it on short leash , so it doesn’t go off on tangents.
You see there is a real addiction to thinking , in fact thinking is probably the most wide spread addition on the planet . Perhaps I’m being a little bit silly here , but not really , yes there is constructive thinking , analytical thinking , all types of thinking that are useful in the creation process.
However much of the thinking going in peoples minds is not constructive at all , in fact it’s counter productive , because most of it is negative or dis empowering , all these old programs running in the back ground , much of it is from the conditioning we get from society or the group mind , there not even our own original thoughts … ouch !

It’s 2014 and The Zombies are here , run … run to the malls … I mean hills ! Billions of them around the planet , walking around in every town and city , state and country , the numbers increasing daily , their minds filled with things , things that need to be done, things that need to be said , things they wish they would have done and said, a steady stream of incessant thinking !
As you walk down the street , you can see them everyone , deep within their thoughts , cut off from the present moment , like zombies in a horror film , only instead of not being able to die, these zombies are not able to live, their conditioned minds have built a prison around their perception , their awareness , everywhere they look there is a thought , a conceptualization , a categorization , a judgment , an opinion , their life situations play on endlessly , like a broken record, like a bad soap opera with no ending in sight , life is a constant battle full of conflict , resolution , loss and gain , this is the state of the modern “Human” being .
On top off that we have “technology” , machines that are supposed to make our life simpler , easier , and while walking , lost in their thoughts , the zombies are texting and talking on their smart phones to other zombies, , thumbs flying as they struggle to text , think and walk at the same time , bumping into each , like cattle headed towards the trough , occasionally you get a glimpse of their eyes, no sign of presence , no sign of awareness , lost in the wilderness of the mind, with frowns on their face, fear in their eyes , it’s a jungle out there and everything is a threat .

We have all heard the common phrase , “Clarity Of Mind ” , well I am changing it to ” Clarity Of Mindlessness !
In the mind created world , the word Mindless has negative connotations , meaning lacking intelligence , not having good sense , careless , no purpose, direction or meaning.
Wow … so not being completely identified with the mind is a real no no here in physicality , no wonder humans are so easily manipulated, even our language is biased towards the conditioned mind persepctive.
I have been talking about the mind a lot lately , what I call the monkey mind, the conditioned mind , thoughts , thinking , self talk , inner chatter and so on , and the reason is because it represents our biggest challenge in our re awakening into the present moment , in that context the conditioned mind is our worst enemy , more so than any conspiracy minded outer threats.
In fact , I would suggest the conditioned mind, the ego is the reason for conspiracies , it is the reason for corruption , the reason for greed, the reason for the need to control , the creator of Hitler , the creator of the Military Industrial Complex, the creation of the police state , all of the control grid mechanisms in other words , are all created , fabricated , manifested out of the fear based persepctive of the conditioned mind, this is where all of this crap is coming from , of which all of the garbage of humanity , the accumulated negative energies manifest within the “co created ” collective reality.
Yes … the co created reality on this planet right now is a largely an unconscious creation , its on auto pilot , humanity lives in the future or the past, very few humans are truly present , they are asleep at the wheel , the world around them seems to pop up out of no where , they are not conscious of their part in creation , in this state , awareness is completely identified with life situations , while life , existence itself … is rarely experienced .
